No. AFAICS (and assuming my maths is correct) the cubic spline Jarkko has described has the following basis matrix: [ 9 27 27 9] M_interp =1/2 [ 18 45 36 9] [11 18 9 2] [ 2 0 0 0] Whereas for a Hermite spline we have (from Foley et al) [ 2 2 1 1] M_hermite = [3 3 2 1] [0 0 1 0] [1 0 0 0] Simon ________________________________ From: Andrew Vidler [mailto:andrew.vidler@...] Sent: 04 November 2008 11:38 To: 'Game Development Algorithms' Subject: Re: [Algorithms] spline name I think you've just found a way of specifying the tangents for a cubic hermite curve? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cubic_Hermite_spline If you look at the formula for q(1/3) and q(2/3) then you'll get two equations in terms of the endpoints and the tangent at each endpoint  just rearranging for the tangents gives you two equations (one for each tangent) in terms of the endpoints and q(1/3), q(2/3)  which is what you've got. Unless there's some other characteristic of the spline that means it's not a Hermite? Cheers, Andrew. ________________________________ From: Jarkko Lempiainen [mailto:altairx@...] Sent: 04 November 2008 11:10 To: 'Game Development Algorithms' Subject: [Algorithms] spline name Hi, Does anyone know if there is a name for a cubic spline which goes through all the defined control points p0..p3 in the interval t=[0, 1], so that q(0)=p0, q(1/3)=p1, q(2/3)=p2 and q(1)=p3? I solved the basis matrix for it, but don't know what's the name of the wheel I just reinvented ;) Cheers, Jarkko ______________________________________________________________________ This email has been scanned by the MessageLabs Email Security System.
